RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Education advocates will hold a press conference to call for Virginia public schools to be fully funded.

According to the Fund Our Schools campaign, the current state budget proposals fall short of what is needed to ensure high-quality education.

The news conference will take place at 8:30 a.m. at the General Assembly to discuss where they stand on education funding this year and what needs to be done going forward.
